Other capabilities include radar subsystems such as Radar Transmitters, High Power Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers, Digital Moving Target Indicators, Digital Range Trackers, and Signa l Processors.
(NASDAQ:CMTL) has announced that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, its Santa Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., which is part of Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment, received an award of over USD 20.0 million from a systems integrator for millimeter-wave traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) to support a new high-speed satellite network, the company said.
This isn't the case for many higher-distortion traveling wave tube amplifiers that may have the P1dB point as much as 6 dB below saturation.
This family of broadband traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTA) delivers significantly more power than standard 200 W milts.
(NASDAQ:CMTL) has announced that its Santa Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom Technology, Inc., has received a contract for more than USD 4.8 million from a US military integrator for high-power satellite communication (SATCOM) traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs), the company said.
For example, traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) typically are operated in saturation so the amplifier's power rating is the saturation power.
As well as technical innovation another way that Thales ED has moved to make the transmitter manufacturer's task easier, is its natural migration towards the supply of high power amplification, and therefore towards the manufacture of traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs), (an example is shown in Figure 3), and high power amplifiers (HPAs).
